Because Channing Tatum is perfect, but there's always room for improvement.

Posted on

The trailer for Magic Mike XXL dropped Wednesday, and it was a visual treat so delicious you could taste it.

Wipe that drool from your mouth.

The rest of the day was spent in an unquenchable state.

While Adam Rodriguez was featured in the first film, Stephen "tWitch" Boss was a welcome addition to the primarily white cast.

So it begged the question, "To make it even sexier, which other actors of color could be added to the Magic Mike cast?"

Here are some suggestions!

1. Godfrey Gao

Because he is literal, historic perfection, Godfrey Gao was the first Asian male to model for Louis Vuitton. People pay him to either wear clothes, or not wear them, as in the photo above.

2. Columbus Short

Admit it: You wondered how Harrison looked underneath those suspenders on Scandal. Keep in mind, before dance film Stomp the Yard Columbus was a dancer-choreographer for Britney Spears.

3. Jay Hernandez

Jay Hernandez has been making guest appearances in dreams for a while — remember when you saw that baby face in Hostel and wanted to keep him safe from harm? He still has that baby face and it'd look great while he grinds to "Pony."

4. William Levy

Now imagine he's doing that 👆 👆 while thrusting his torso or moving his body like a snake. (#Neverforget all the ass shaking he did on Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars, where he came in third place!)

5. Pooch Hall

Pooch Hall was NFL player Derwin Davis on BET series The Game. He wore towels often, as well as magical butt-lifting uniform pants. Pooch, come back and show us how you work it. There's some tearaway pants with your name on them.

6. Rick Yune

Can Rick Yune dance? Who the hell knows.

Is Rick Yune coordinated? Duh, he does martial arts.

Is RIck Yune sexy? Next question.

7. Coby Bell

This team needs snarky humor and chiseled cheekbones! Thank god there's Coby Bell. As part of the ensemble on USA's spy drama Burn Notice, Coby proved he works well in teams — and, in real life, Coby is a certified DILF.

8. Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez is immortal, therefore you've seen him near-naked plenty of times. It never loses its power.

9. The Rock

Once upon a time, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson worked in his underwear all the damn time. You know, for his job as a pro wrestler. Bring that old thang back, Dwayne!

10. Jason Momoa

Imagine Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, on stage next to Channing Tatum, throwing that hair and synchronously slanging that...you know.

11. Michael B. Jordan

This miiiight not be his kind of movie, but he's talented enough to make a film about strippers feel high-brow (just like the first Magic Mike.) He doesn't even need to dance with a smile like that. Well, maybe. Maybe a little dancing.

Why doesn't Hollywood think of these things?
